A worthless kid who steals cars, drives them around with scant regard for their own safety let along those around them. Often conveniently burns the cars afterwards.

The people carrying out these crimes often tend to be council.
Man 1: That joyrider's trapped in the car he set alight. Christ, he's screaming like a stuck pig.
Man 2: Come one, we'll miss the bus.

the name given to someone from britain or ireland usually from major cities who engage in stealing cars and taking them for a spin before setting the cars alight. usually a joy rider can be best described as a male youth in his teens to early 20's unemployed dressed in tracksuits and illiterate. maybe from a broken home but are parasitical by nature. see also death driver
all joy riders should be shot
